Nailed it! Spare Ribs Pron
Not on purpose or for any particular reason, but did this in my drum this afternoon.

Started the drum at 250*
Put the ribs on and ran them at 250* for an hour
Then 275* for an hour
Then 300* for just under two hours

I had no plan for this, was suppose to have some guests coming over, ended up running some errands later instead, which is the cause of the changing temperatures. Had nothing to do with the ribs themselves, other than wanting them to get done before we left. Like they say, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.

Easily my best rack yet. Great smoke ring (I"m guess from the "low" starting point) and lots of pig honey at the end (can't really see it, these pics are an hour and a half off the smoker)

Nicely done. Who says you need to keep a steady temp for good results?

Rising cooking temps work for me too!

good looking ribs!

Sure does look like you nailed it!

Often it does work out like that... no expectations and taking it easy... and BAM, you turn out a winner!

Great looking ribs!

You are welcome. Cooking ribs this way is like when you have been tagging some girl for a while, never able to quite ring her bell, and she is about to dump you too --- then figure out by accident, all you had to do was fish hook her.

You did nail it. Great job!

You don't need consistent temp just good skills, and you obviously have the skills. :thumb:
